Waiting

He is waiting
for honesty and truth
To claim their hold
on today’s youth
He is Gandhi,
and he lies still, waiting

He is waiting
For homophobics, and racists
and mysognists
to stop buying his records
and listening to his music
He is Cobain
and he lies still, waiting

He was brave when he was alive
He suffered and walked that extra mile
Our times suffer from a serious
want of courage
And Mandela is tired of watching
the grand justice miscarriage

Newton waits for mankind to think
Franklin waits for blood to be replaced by ink
Da Vinci knows that nature is waiting
For the wars to end, and them to start creating.
